On September 19, 2020, Historic Columbia (HC) held a virtual Jubilee: Festival of Black History & Culture presented by Bank of America. Despite the ongoing pandemic, the community found a way to continue coming together in celebration of South Carolina’s Black history and culture.

- Viewers heard from generations of Columbia activists as they shared their stories of inspiration and achievement from the 20th century to today’s Black Lives Matter movement.
- Musical guests included AE the Cool, hip-hop artists Anfernee and Matt Monday, as well as IndigoSOUL.
